SECTION 4. (A) This section is remedial, with its purpose being to remedy an error in Amended Substitute Senate Bill No. 250, passed by the 123rd General Assembly on May 24, 2000, approved by the Governor on June 21, 2000, and effective on June 21, 2000, by adding language that was removed erroneously from the original legal description for the parcel of real estate designated as "Parcel No. 3" in Section 12 of that act that authorized the conveyance of property the Adjutant General determined was no longer needed for armory or military purposes. The legal description contained in that act was erroneous because it did not reflect an easement which, instead of being reserved to the original grantor, was actually a part of the original grant of land to the State of Ohio, Adjutant General's Department. Thus, the Adjutant General's Department could not properly transfer all of the land it was originally granted. The purpose of this section is to authorize the conveyance of the property located in Scioto County, Ohio, using the description contained in Amended Substitute Senate Bill No. 250 of the 123rd General Assembly, with the addition of the description of the easement for ingress and egress to the property, originally granted to the State of Ohio.
